ADRIAN Keatley is taking London Icon on his travels for the French 2000 Guineas. An impressive winner of a Naas maiden in October, he was beaten on his return to action this season. However, he lost little in defeat in attempting to give the winner, Dianthus, over a stone in weight.

Keatley said: "London Icon will go straight for the French Guineas, and hopefully we'll get him there in one piece.

"It's unknown whether he's up to that competition or not, but we won't know unless we go.

"He's in good shape and doing everything right since his run at Naas."
